Forever Knight (1992)

Black Buddha (1) - S3-E1

Factual error: In the flashbacks, the shipboard lifesaver rings are emblazoned with the incorrect designation "S.S. Titanic." The Titanic was a Royal Mail Ship. The stencil should have read R.M.S., not S.S. (00:14:00 - 00:24:50)

Star Trek (1966)

The Gamesters of Triskelion - S2-E16

Continuity mistake: The Providers' representative colors on the game platform and the thralls' collars (all three colors are on Galt's collar) are red, yellow and blue. But when Kirk appears before them, the Providers themselves are red, yellow and green, and so is the gaming symbol inside their glass bubble. (00:40:00)

Mr. Monk Gets Drunk - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: Monk and Natalie question the landlady, Sylvia, about the missing guest. Every time the camera angle changes, Sylvia's arms change from being crossed in front of her to hanging loosely at her sides.

The Trouble With Tribbles - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: The tribble-inundated Kirk is holding one of the small fur balls in both hands in some shots, but when the camera angle changes, that tribble vanishes and his hands are no longer even close together. (00:40:40)

Trivia: A perennial Star Trek extra, the tall blond Eddie Paskey played a red-shirted crewman standing in the background in virtually every Trek episode for all 3 seasons. He rarely had any lines, and was even killed off in "Obsession," but was back on duty anyhow in the following episodes and for the rest of the series.

The Trouble With Tribbles - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: When Kirk is standing in the huge pile of tribbles, he's cradling two large tribbles in his arms in full shots, but only one, and in a different position, in close-ups. (00:40:00)

Wolf in The Fold - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: In the briefing room, Hengist and the Prefect are sitting in chairs against the wall at least a foot apart, with bright overhead lighting that casts no shadows on the wall behind them. When we cut to a two-shot of them, however, they're suddenly shoulder-to-shoulder with almost no space between them, and the lighting changes to cast very dark shadows behind them. (00:28:20)

Obsession - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: At the end, when Kirk and Garrovick are beamed up seconds before the explosion, Kirk is holding his communicator up to his mouth with both hands. But when they finally materialize on the Enterprise, Kirk's hands are down at his sides: no communicator in sight. (00:47:00 - 00:48:10)

Friday's Child - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: Kirk's arrow strikes the Klingon in the knee. But a few shots later, the shaft is protruding from his thigh, several inches above its original position. Still later, he's holding one hand to his calf just below the knee, which isn't where the arrow was either time. (00:43:40)

Friday's Child - S2-E11

Friday's Child - S2-E11

Continuity mistake: Before the Capellans reach him, the Klingon's body moves into a completely different position, and to a different spot on the ground, than it was in when he first fell. (00:46:10)

The Deadly Years - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: The aging Kirk's hairline has receded considerably. When he ages still more and goes completely gray, however, the receding process inexplicably reverses itself, and he suddenly has much more hair on his forehead than before. (00:34:35 - 00:43:55)

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk and the Other Detective - S4-E1

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk and the Kid - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: In the opening sequence, the uniformed cop who finds toddler Tommy holding the severed finger bends down and says, "What've you got there, big guy?" In full shot, the cop is bare-handed. But when we cut to a close-up in the middle of his line, he's suddenly wearing a latex glove.

Dying for Fame - S1-E16

Plot hole: Nick calls Schanke and asks him to take the Polaroids in to a lab for analysis. But Nick seems to have forgotten that he has the photos with him. They're not back at the precinct station for Schanke to take them in. (00:30:25)

Father Figure - S1-E14

Plot hole: Near the end, a cop comes to tell Schanke that an explosion has been reported at Nick's place. But neither of the two intruders uses any explosives. One shoots his way in through a door and the other breaks in through a skylight. Neither makes enough noise for the disturbance to be called an explosion. (00:41:15)
